Hoping— just announced today — would include a keyboard that can’t be damaged by a little dust? (Seriously: .)
Sadly, while the new 2018 MacBook Pro does have an updated third-generation keyboard, Apple tells Techhnews it doesn’t include any new engineering or tweaks to address the sticky key issue.
Instead, the third-generation keyboard’s tweaks are about making it quieter. In a brief typing test, Techhnews’s long-time MacBook reviewer Dan Ackerman says it isn’t “whisper-quiet” but does “lack the sharp click of the previous design.”
Technically, Apple has admitted only that “a small percentage of the keyboards in certain MacBook and MacBook Pro models” have demonstrated the sticky key issue. If you buy one, you may likely never have that problem.
But it’s worth noting that when the company, it made literally every single model of MacBook Pro with the “butterfly switch” keyboard eligible.
Oh by the way — today, Apple has apparently, which was the last MacBook Pro with the older style of keyboard.
